ENGINEERED QUARTZ

One of Natures Hardest Materials and The Number One Choice For Kitchen Benchtops in Australia

What is Engineered Quartz?

Engineered Quartz is an ideal modern surface for new or traditional kitchen and bathroom styles and fast becoming one of the most popular kitchen benchtop materials in Australia and worldwide. 

With its uniformity, strength, and impermeability, it will give the feel of a stone worktop with a stain resistance second to none and is a good choice in any modern family kitchen.

Made from 94% natural crushed quartzite with a 6% coloured resin binding agent, the mix is poured into a mould, and pressed and ‘baked’ at high temperature to harden it. The mould is vibrated during the cooking process which settles the material in such a way as to render it impermeable, making it lighter and strong than granite. 

Styles vary greatly in price from manufacturer to manufacturer, and colour to colour and Epsilon Stone’s TELTOS range of quartz surfaces gives you the best quality at a much more affordable price than many other brands available on the market today. 

Major Benefits of Engineered Quartz

  • Minimal Maintenance
    Thanks to it’s basically non-porous surface, spills, stains and marks are easy to clean and your kitchen benchtop easy to maintain.

    To clean: Simply use a mixture of detergent and water or a designated quartz cleaner and ensure any spills and marked are wiped up as they occur. 

  • High Stain Resistance

    Wine, soft drink, coffees and food particles, all the usual suspects of any kitchen benchtop will have a minimal effect of the surface quality of your engineered quartz benchtop.In part again to the lack of surface porosity and the hardness of quartz itself.
  • Heat Resistant
    Although engineered quartz has a very high heat resistance, this must not be confused for it being “Heat resistant”. It is best to avoid directly placing hot suacepans and pans directly on the surface of your stone benchtop to avoid cracks or scortch marks are left.
  • Scratch Resistantance

Engineered quartz is one of natures hardest materials and is perfect for handling the stresses of every day life. Scratches and chipping can occur with any quartz surface, but this typically only occurs with misuse. Look after your quartz benchtop well and you can rest assured of a long and healthy life for your kitchen benchtop under normal use.

  • Other Useful Information

    Epsilon Stone do not recommend chopping or cutting directly onto the quartz work surface due to advances in modern knife manufacturing. We always recommend using a chopping board either in wood, toughened glass or acrylic.
